#' @title P-value for ratio of standard deviations of 2 samples
#' @description Calculates the p-value for the ratio of the standard deviation of 2 samples (F distribution).
#' @param s1 Sample's 1 standard deviation
#' @param n1 Sample size of sample 1
#' @param s2 Sample's 2 standard deviation
#' @param n2 Sample size of sample 2
#' @param side To either get a two-tail or one-tail p-value (Default is "two")
